Covering war

Great article in The Times about the toll of covering the war in Iraq: not the equivalent of 4,000 soldiers dead, but hard, too: Trauma, kidnap and death: all in a day's work for journalists in Iraq.
Journalists who cover conflict generally have strong stomachs. But Iraq's violence was not the regular battlefield kind, if there was ever such a thing.

There's much more in The Times on this 5th anniversary, from a slide show of Times front pages to blogs and video.

(And, via Wired, a link to the New York Times' Faces of the Dead. Most of those 4,000 are here.)
